Democrats' Plans for More Spending Could Mean a Lost Decade for America

House and Senate Democrats are preparing to release another very costly legislative response to COVID-19. No cost estimate is available quite yet, but we know that it’s likely to rival the $2.3 trillion cost of the Phase III bill, the CARES Act, which passed Congress in March. Although all the details of the Democrats’ legislation haven’t been released, it will likely include $1 trillion in funding for state and local governments, bailouts for pension funds and the U.S. Postal Service, expansion of food stamps and the earned income tax credit, universal basic income, and an “essential worker bill of rights.”

Pennsylvania Should Privatize Alcohol Sales

Although we all learn about the horrors of Prohibition in school, few seem to realize that many Americans are still living in the shadow of those laws today. While attitudes towards alcohol have warmed since the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment, 17 states still maintain monopolies over the distribution of spirits. Worst among these is Pennsylvania, whose Liquor Control Board (PLCB) essentially functions as a cartel. Now is the time to abandon antiquated notions of state control and allow the market to flourish by privatizing Pennsylvania’s liquor industry.

Brian Kemp's Leadership on Re-Opening Georgia's Economy Is Deserving of Praise

Gov. Brian Kemp (R-Ga.) has come under intense criticism for taking steps to re-open Georgia. The criticism is peculiar. Reading the reactions on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and elsewhere, one would think that Kemp is forcing businesses to re-open and making consumers begin visiting stores and restaurants. The reality is that it’s up to business owners whether they re-open, and it’s up to consumers whether they leave their homes. It’s a choice, which is the very basis of liberty.

The Inevitable Consequences of Rushed Legislation Could Hurt the Economic Recovery

A rushed legislative process often has unintended consequences. Language is hastily written. Policies that are included aren’t fully thought through. The most important thing in the minds of lawmakers is to “do something.” Certainly, something had to be done in response to COVID-19, but aspects of the Phase III response, the CARES Act, will almost certainly hurt the economic recovery. One aspect of the CARES Act that will hurt the recovery is the enhanced unemployment benefits for Americans who’ve lost their jobs due to disruptions caused by COVID-19.

Can a President Adjourn Congress? It's a Really Loaded Question

President Donald Trump suggested on Wednesday that he has the constitutional authority to adjourn Congress. The suggestion has been, unsurprisingly, panned by the media and legal scholars. The Constitution does actually provide some authority here, but the authority has never been used, leaving more questions than answers.

An Economic Recovery Starts by Lifting Small Businesses Back Up

The economic devastation caused by the coronavirus pandemic has left many wondering what’s ahead for Americans if federal, state, and local officials don’t soon begin taking steps to reopen the economy. Businesses of all sizes have taken drastic steps and, unfortunately, had to make tough decisions to furlough or layoff workers.

States Facing Extreme Lockdowns Must Revisit Executive Power After COVID-19

Writing in her 2006 book, Liberty for All: Reclaiming Individual Privacy in a New Era of Public Morality, professor Elizabeth Price Foley explained, “America started with a concept of limited government, designed to protect and improve the life, liberty, and property of citizens, and has ended with a concept of unlimited government, capable of restricting our life, liberty, and property in the name of protecting us from ourselves.”
